Firefox updates use the term MSI, but never do you explain what that means. Come on guys step around the counter and act like a user. Not only what does it mean, but what are the differences between MSI and the download without MSI?

Hi,

I am on a Mac Pro running High Sierra. Everytime I launch Firefox I get a error message that "this file may harm your computer" which is a .dmg in my downloads toolbar. I think I clicked on a bad link. I have cleared my cache and history and it still always pops up. I do not want this file nor do I want it to give me this warning everytime I launch Firefox.

Any advice is helpful.

Thanks

Hello, since migrating from Chrome to Firefox, I have used the Import Wizard to successfully transfer over my bookmarks and history, but I just can't seem to get my logins/passwords over. The wizard finishes saying that it successfully imported saved logins and passwords, but nothing shows up in the password manager. I am running Windows 10 64bit and Firefox is up to date. Anybody have any suggestions?

Thanks

Yesterday when I installed the 96.0 update it has forced my background color into a dark grey and ignores the background color setting. I would like to know if there is a setting, add on or update that can return this to normal. The theme I am using has not been updated in 2 years so I am fairly sure the update has caused this.

I am using version 91.5.0esr (64-bit). Virtually always, the download status shows as failed. Yet, there were files created by the download. I have even been able to go back literally months in the downloads history, click to retry each download, which is then showed as being successful. I did NOT reload the pages whose content I was trying to download. I realize that a browser tends to have a cache, but surely not that big. I'm guessing that showing the status failed is some type of error.

I have for many years tried to have excel automatically open downloaded .csv files as I do this every day many times. Until today I have not been able to understand why, despite having asked for Firefox to automatically open .csv files with Excel, and therefore finding "Microsoft Excel Comma Separated Values File" associated to "Use Excel (Default)" in the application association list in the General settings, Firefox continues to ask what to do with the .csv file type when downloading.

What I have discovered is that when using a search for associations in the General tab, csv gives no results! However searching for cel does for some reason list the "Microsoft Excel Comma Separated Values File".

It seems to me that the file type three letter code for the Microsoft excel csv file is wrongly stated in the association list. Is my assumption right? If so how can I correct this please?

For information I have had this problem on more than one computer! I have just set this up on a brand new laptop when discovering this.

Images attached... Thank you.

I've been using Firefox ESR for some years. Now I would like to know the best way to use and try the "normal" version of Firefox. Can I install it without uninstall ESR? Or must I do a clean install of Firefox after getting rid of ESR? If this is the case, what must I do to keep my profile, bookmarks, etc?

For some reason (probably Microsoft vandalism), Firefox was removed from my startup programs a few weeks ago. I looked in the MS list of apps and saw 2 versions of x64 Firefox, -GB and -US. Being in GB, I chose to uninstall the US version. Then Firefox stopped working. It was not longer shown on my desktop, and had disappeared from the start menu. But the GB version was still listed in the app list (209MB), but I cannot find out how to start it. IOBit suggests it is buried in ../Appdata/local. It does not appear when I use the taskbar search for Firefox.

So I reinstalled Firefox, but the tool gave no options on which version to install, nor where to install it. The US version was reinstalled on my C: drive. Just going round in circles.

How do I solve the problem? Thank you.

I've read all the articles here about importing my passwords and history, but the Import Wizard is ONLY giving me the option to import my bookmarks. Even if I can't get the browsing history I need to be able to migrate my (extensive) password list.

I've exported my Safari passwords as a .csv file, but there doesn't seem to be an option to import a .csv file.

The page here regarding it says the feature is 'disabled by default' but does not say it's unavailable and I can't find clear instructions for how to activate the feature so that I can import my passwords. Can anybody help?

I had a laptop die on me suddenly without knowing about Firefox sync, the laptops hard drive still worked but I didn't have a way to access it for about 10 months until now. on a new laptop I have set up a new Firefox profile and either set up new passwords or or opened new accounts on some of the websites but a lot of old logins and browsing data, and bookmarks. now that I can access the old profile on the old hard drive I was trying to see if I could just recover missing passwords or data from the old to new profile but on the support website all I can find seems to be how to overwrite the the new profile with the old one which would mean losing a chunk of new passwords and data. it is also unclear whether any new backup or syncs of the new profile would remain or be wiped with the overwrite, is there a way to view the old profiles data to recover parts piecemeal or is the only option to overwrite the new profile. I apologize if this is a lack of computer literacy.

Your version 97 update somehow got installed on my computer -- even though I had purposefully DISABLED automatic updates. You have obviously made some very bad choices in update 97 regarding web site display. Now several web sites that I use regularly DO NOT display properly and are hence extremely difficult to use. I have used Firefox for many years and have generally been satisfied with it. But this new and very serious problem with your 97.0.1 version is completely unacceptable.

How can I easily get back to a prior version of Firefox that does display web sites properly, especially without losing all of my settings, cookies, etc?

If easily getting back to a prior version of Firefox is not possible, then I will have no other option but to completely abandon your browser, and instead use Chrome or some other browser that is more stable that Firefox!!

Even your own web site does not work properly as it does not allow me to select the box below to "Email me when someone answers the thread"

I've also tried using a linux laptop, and i can't login with it either, but it works fine on android and windows. If i try it too many times my account locks, don't know what to do

Can these things be restored, and if so what do I need to do?
